    HSBC Trusts

    I thought they were ordered to get out of the bank trust business. Considering the ordeal, I have had the past 5 years with them in getting a new trust with Autofin from their sellers trust, I find this surprising to say the least.

    Yes, just found this out last week from the attorney and notario that were about to submit the final steps and doc's for my LLC and bank trust that I have been trying to accomplish for over 5 years thanks to the sellers trust with HSBC. Nothing like getting stopped on the 1 yard line after all...
